About the workshop

Kidnapping is a huge multi-national business and one that is growing all around the world including the United States! No one is immune from this growing pandemic.

As people have a more global dimension and businesses continue to expand operations internationally, the protection of families, personnel, employees and trade secrets is more critical now than ever before.

This is a very unique comprehensive one day workshop designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to help you prevent, avoid or survive a kidnapping.

Workshop Objectives

Traditionally Anti-Kidnap & Hostage Survival courses were only available to military special operations units, government agency personnel and select companies in the defense sector and individuals such as journalists, however Cantor Tactical has designed this workshop for concerned citizens to meet the unprecedented escalating global criminal and terrorism challenge that we all face.

The workshop addresses: how to respond to a kidnapping event and what to do in the critical first minutes and hours after an incident occurs. The participants will learn about conduct after capture and survival as well as effective kidnap response through a combination of academic and practical ‘hands-on’ elements.
